|Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera|
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera switches on and can take its first photo in about 1.7 seconds. The camera shutter response at .5 seconds is good - and shot to shot time was quick, at less than 2 seconds (this is going to vary dependant on exposure conditions). Continuous shooting is moderately quick, at roughly 1.5fps at the highest resolution though when using flash can slow to between 5 and 10 seconds between shots (dependant on battery condition). The cameras menus and zooming in seemed responsive.”
Canon A550 Review - Noise and Detail
Joshua continues: "The Canon PowerShot A550 has relatively low noise up to ISO200. ISO400 produces acceptable results, and ISO800 is probably best left unused unless absolutely necessary. Compared with the other two cameras, noise does appear much more noticeable, however, when compared to the Panasonic FX30, you can see that the A550 retains more detail even when the ISO setting is increased. However neither the Canon or the Panasonic perform as well as the Fujifilm, which manages to produce low noise images right up to ISO800 with very good detail.”
Canon PowerShot Exposure compensation
"The sensor, electronics and optics used by Canon can produce good images. However, best results are achieved by tweaking the exposure compensation and white balance in manual mode. Exposure compensation is also available in the scene modes, but not in auto mode (which tends to produce overexposed images). Colours are rich and in a very wide range of situations the camera will take sharp, detailed pictures.” You want to learn more about the Canon PowerShot digital camera?
